Well DDR400 has been there for a while, but we might be able to get your motherboard problem fixed if you post up the exact circumstances and specs.
Does your PC still work if you take out the new ram. Or was this a fried component problem.

Your best bet is to go to crucial and do a search for that particular motherboard.. If it can use DDR333 ram, they will say!!

It is usually backwards compatible but always double check.
